This session will guide you through a journey of early cinema in Scotland, many forms of animation which kick started the Edwardian beginnings of film, up to tablet film-making technology used in schools today. We will be highlighting resources which can be used for social subjects, including local history projects, and provide steps on how to get the most out of them.

Scotland on Screen
Our online learning resource Scotland on Screen contains hundreds of films and clips from our collections to watch, discuss and use as inspiration for your own projects.
The films document over a century of Scottish lives on film, with particular reference to social, economic and environmental change.
Each film is accompanied by suggested activities for before and after watching, as well as links to other relevant films and videos. The film material has been selected and described for its relevance to the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence.
